I don’t know about you, but I love kale! Kale is a form of cabbage with green and purple leaves. It is very high in beta carotene, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, folate, is rich in calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium and has many anti-cancer properties. Kale has also been shown to lower cholesterol and decrease absorption of dietary fat. Sounds like a superfood to me. Many health conscious folk now eat kale raw, dehydrated or in fresh juices. It can also be lightly stir fried or steamed.

My favourite quick side dish is to stir fry chopped kale with a tad of butter, rapeseed oil and a good quality sea salt. Stir fry until just limp. beautiful.
